Tactical Analysis: Van Dijk Shines as Reds Pass Turf Moore Test

Tactical Analysis: Van Dijk Shines as Reds Pass Turf Moore Test

The stage was set for Liverpool to drop their first points of their new campaign. No sooner had the referee ushered the ball towards the centre circle to kickstart proceedings, than Sean Dyche was seen gesticulating towards his players to kick the ball long towards the Liverpool defence. Why? Well, as Sean Dyche pointed out without any concern for subtlety, the sun was shining directly into the eyes of Liverpool's defence and keeper. The message was clear: hit early long …

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …

Liverpool's Goalkeepers - A Statistical Analysis

Liverpool's Goalkeepers - A Statistical Analysis

You probably won't believe me but I had the idea for this article way before the Arsenal game. I had even started gathering the stats from the different sites before the game started. The article was due last Thursday but I decided to postpone it for this week so I get a sample size that is a little bigger. And then Simon Mignolet allows a goal that he could have realistically saved with a header - the ball was that …
Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's draw against Burnley

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's draw against Burnley

Liverpool's draw against Burnley was an intensely frustrating affair, bearing the hallmarks of Liverpool's troubles during the 2016/17 league campaign, and several preceding it. Liverpool dominated with the ball and had 35 efforts yet only created one 'big' chance, and Burnley were actually the closest to scoring, as Liverpool, again, switched off defensively for a set-piece. However, with seven changes from the previous game, and with both Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge starting, Liverpool played differently, and today; other than the …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Competition: Premier League Date: 16/9/17 Venue: Anfield September has been a sobering month for Liverpool fans. Gone are the exuberant days of August and with them, our care-free attitude to just enjoying our Redmen attacking, scoring, and attacking again. September has opened our eyes to those defensive concerns which we knew were always there. In August, we were able to sweep those matters under the proverbial rug. September, however, seems to be that better friend. Unlike August, she won’t let …

Liverpool v Burnley Preview - Key Battles

An almighty thrashing at the Etihad Stadium was followed by a peculiar display at Anfield by Liverpool against Sevilla, where the Reds dominated for large parts of the game, only for sloppiness to cost them two points in the UEFA Champions League. On Saturday, it is back to Premier League action at Anfield as Liverpool welcome Sean Dyche's Burnley. Burnley were very lucky to win 1-0 against Crystal Palace last weekend, as the Eagles missed loads of chances in a …
